The Donald trumped event with praise for Foley, others
He said that wasn’t the case with the Loeb School program. Even though it was in some ways sad, he told me he was glad he had been invited.
From the moment Dianne Mercier of People’s United Bank welcomed the audience and directed her own poignant remarks to the Foley family, I had the feeling this was going to be a memorable event, notwithstanding some excellent past recipients and featured speakers.
Watching and listening to his parents, you could see why Foley was who he was. His dad is a doctor, his mom a nurse. Their New Hampshire roots run deep. Dr. Foley’s father was a big part of Plymouth State College for years. Their pride in their family is evident and despite their ordeal, it is they who reach out to comfort others.
I think The Donald is right.
